In memory – Anthoine Hubert (1996-2019)

 

 

 

Invictus Racing League is saddened to report on the tragic news after the passing of Anthoine Hubert this evening.

On lap two of the FIA F2 round nine Feature race, Arden driver Anthoine Hubert was involved in a violent multi-car incident after the Raidillon corner at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium which also involved the Sauber Junior Team by Charouz of Juan-Manuel Correa, amongst others.

After an agonising wait, the worst news was released by the FIA that unfortunately Anthoine had succumbed to his injuries and passed away the age of 22 and only three weeks before his 23rd birthday. Juan-Manuel Correa was airlifted to Liege Hospital where he was reported to be in a serious but stable condition.

Anthoine enjoyed a successful karting career where he often raced the likes of Dorian Boccolachi and Charles Leclerc, and in 2013 moved up to the French F4 Championship where he won the series at the first attempt. In the following years he took victories in the Formula Renault Championship alongside future F2 rivals Jack Aitken, Louis Deletraz and Nikita Mazepin. However it was when moving into GP3 in 2017 he started to show his true potential, and after a first season that saw him finish fourth in the Championship, in 2018 he won the last ever GP3 Championship as part of the French team ART, whilst being signed to the Renault Sport Academy, and in turn managed to get a drive for Arden in Formula 2 for 2019.

This season he took hugely popular victories at the Monaco Grand Prix and French Grand Prix Sprint races and was currently eighth in the driver standings with 77 points, and had been tipped to represent Renault in the future on the Formula One grid.

 

It has been a shocking and sad day for everyone involved in the Motorsport world, and we here at Invictus Racing League offer our sincerest condolences and positive thoughts to the family, friends, colleagues and sponsors of Anthoine Hubert.

A minutes silence will be held at the commencement of the next round of races in his memory.

 

Thank you for sharing your passion with us all Anthoine, may you rest well.

Invictus Racing League – Round One – Austria – Powered by Red Bull (Ring)

 

 

 

After two pre-season races for each league, the official Invictus calendar began this week as the cars and drivers made their way to Spielberg, Austria for the first round of the season.

All leagues are near capacity, but with a few spaces left on track now is the time to get yourself on the grid for the season by heading to the ‘Apply to race’ section above. However, the talent on show was more than enough excitement this week as we saw four fantastic races.

(Due to connection issues the Performance League was postponed and will be rescheduled.)

 

No-Assist

In an explosive opener, the No-Assist league once again provided a sumptuous nights entertainment with one of the best on track battles we have seen in several seasons.

Qualifying was led start to finish by the Renault of LR_Archy, who seemed untouchable in the French manufacture, as he claimed pole ahead of FPL_Charlie, who was making his official debut in the league.

Although losing the lead off of the start, Archy was able to come back at Charlie into turn three on lap two and from there he controlled the race from the front.

It was the battle behind which enthralled the viewers as we saw a magnificent fight, firstly between Charlie and Scott (BoyBetterKnowSB) in the Mercedes and the two Haas cars of Scopefielder and Samuthepito, which unfortunately was cut short after a mistake from Samuthepito as the Spaniard mis-judged his pit-entry and ended up cutting across a helpless Charlie, forcing him into an early spin and subsequent pit-stop.

As the race progressed Archy opened up a huge lead, and with the impressive No-Assist rookie NickLJThomson also running well in second, they both put themselves back on track after their stops with clear air and the ability to push to the end on fresh rubber.

The battle for second went down to the wire as both Haas cars, Scott, NickLJT and CPI Alex all ran nose-to-tail as the five swapped positions lap upon lap fighting for a podium position, the action was electrifying and highlighted by a superb move around the outside of turn four for Scopefielder on Scott.

However, the man of the day was Archy as the Renault crossed the line comfortably 20 seconds up the road from his rivals, as he started the season in dominant fashion. Scott came across the line in second, but was pipped on a penalty by Samuthepito, who himself would be visiting the stewards post-race. Scopefielder, Nick and Alex finished off of the podium, but played their part in a dramatic opening race.

Next up, Monaco.

 

Equal Performance

F1

It was business as usual once again for VSR_Marqueses as the Williams driver took full honours at the head of the pack for the entire evening around the Red Bull Ring. It was already well known that he had a significant pace advantage going into the session, but with the likes of Scopefielder and fast starting Partridge99 both looking to catch the impressively fast pole-sitter, it was all to play for.

However, it was immediately apparent that the task would be a tall order as he drove away from the pack, and by lap four already enjoyed a three second lead.

The battle ended up being for second in the early stages, but with Partridge collecting the Alfa Romeo of Foxyred2000 into turn three, it promoted Scopefielder into second and demoted the frustrated drivers to fourth and sixth respectively.

The beneficiary of the mistakes around him was AaronJSpence, who like Partridge was making his debut in F1, and by lap 14 had made his way into third place, and after making his stop was able to carve back through past the likes of Partridge and TamworthFox back into the podium positions.

At the front it was once again Marqueses who put on a clinic for the rest of the league as he crossed the line seventeen seconds ahead of nearest rival Scopefielder as the VSR driver claimed the first race win of the season.

The final podium position went to Aaron, who after making a mistake and dropping to fifth was able to keep in a small enough gap to be promoted via penalties to the podium, whilst a late spin for Partridge dropped him from fourth to sixth.

Great start from Marqueses and he will be happy with the pace tonight on a track he enjoys. Can he keep up this lightning performance for the next 11 rounds?

 

F2

There was a surprise in F2 this week as Tanker903 took the race win in Spielberg. The Austrian flagged driver had struggled in pre-season and not shown the pace that he unleashed on Wednesday, but he was a comfortable winner ahead of the first of two McLarens in the top four with Megglugpy in second on his return to F2.

The race had started him Megg on pole, but with Tanker overhauling him and keeping the McLaren at bay, it was the fight for second and third between Megg and another surprise in Steen-13, who only in his second year of sim-racing was able to go toe-to-toe with the multi-time champion in Invictus. Although he had to settle for third as he tried but unfortunately just couldn’t keep up in the late stages on very worn hard tyres.

The battles on track throughout the race were absolutely superb, and fighting from 15th meant that Captain_Stiff was in many of them, after a good start and consistent early pace, he engaged in a brilliant fight with Craig8728, and then a returning DeLange93 who was welcomed back to the league with a dazzling side-by-side fight with Stiff over the first two sectors as the two banged wheels and gave each other just enough room, whilst unrelenting in their pursuit to gain the position.

On the reverse strategy however it was Stiff who managed to stay ahead in the late stages, and with the McLaren’s amassing 20 points already, could they be a force in this seasons’ constructor’s championship?

Tanker will be delighted with his pace and no doubt with the winner’s trophy, but there are plenty of talented drivers in F2 this season, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see several different names visit the top step of the rostrum over the remainder of the calendar.

 

F3

FerociousDan has dominated pre-season in F3, and with the McLaren driver once again on form, he made it a first official win to add to his pre-season successes. He has pedigree for pace around the Red Bull Ring, and makes it a second season in a row of standing on the top step of the podium, as he utilised very quick early pace and then a perfect strategy call as the race suddenly became intermediate conditions after fourteen laps.

The race started well for Dan as he lined up alongside team-mate F1Richard, but with the race turning wet, the drivers that all started on the soft compound were struggling for grip, and for the unfortunate Richard, he stopped for hard tyres one lap before the rain hit and therefore lost around twenty seconds making a second stop two laps later dropping him well out of contention.

Luke Bailey had made solid progress through the field, and the Red Bull driver along with the Mercedes of BWAClyde both enjoyed large gaps and could cruise around for the remaining 14 laps and make up the podium for round one.

It’s another win for Dan who is surely the #1 favourite for the F3 after his win, but can he keep the consistency that he lacked last season, and with last season’s runner-up  xMIKExSI returning to F3 for the season at Monaco, perhaps the McLaren may have a slightly harder task than first thought?

There are plenty of drivers in f3 capable of winning, but who can step-up in Monte Carlo and take the fight to FerociousDan.

 

 

Join us next week as we return to the streets on Monte Carlo, Monaco for the first time in 18 months as the cars take to the tight streets of the glamourous principality in the south of France. Who can hold their nerve, and draw the winning hand as Invictus heads to the trickiest circuit on the calendar.

Invictus Racing League – F1 – Pre-season two – Feeling the heat in Mexico City

 

 

 

 

 

The temperature is rising not only on the track, but within the nerves of all drivers as the first race of the official calendar is almost upon us. The final obstacle in pre-season was the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City, a track which splits opinion as it offers good over-taking opportunities, but with a tricky second sector leading into a very slow third sector, the drivers have to be on the limit to find every last fraction of a second from the car.

It was the Mexican circuit which would play host to the final preparations of all drivers, whether they be scouting the opposition, finalising set-ups or getting comfortable back in pack racing. However, with a number of drivers already well up to speed, the level of competitiveness and intensity showed no sign of being curtailed due to the lack of points on offer. This was about making a statement and taking the psychological edge leading into next week.

 

No-Assist

After opening pre-season last week in Spain Scopefielder was looking at making it a double on track with successive wins, however with the likes of reigning Champion Scott (BoyBetterKnowSB), Samuthepito and newcomer FPL_Charlie on the pace it seems, the likelihood for an all-time great season is truly expected.

The Renault’s of LR_Archy and White-fountain had impressed in their debut here last season, and it was the two once again who ended up at the front end of the grid, as the French manufacture was split by the Swede Scopefielder in his Haas after a superb qualification lap from Archy put him at the head of the pack.

The race began with a sparkle as we saw an immediate change for second as white-fountain moved past Scope and then embroiled himself in a fantastic three lap battle with team-mate Archy, but with white-fountain spinning on the exit of turn three on lap four, it opened up the race for the drivers on the medium tyre such as Scope and Charlie to come back late into the stint.

It seemed to be a race long battle for the likes of Sam, Scope and Charlie as the Haas drivers tried everything to keep the Williams behind, and with Scott struggling with wing damage after a collision with Charlie, it was left to the three to try and make a late charge to Archy who had a comfortable lead out front.

Penalties were the order of the day as drivers struggled to keep the cars within the white lines, and with several drivers picking up time penalties it made Archy’s race slightly easier as both Haas cars found themselves not only involved in a battle with each other, but against the stewards adding on time to their finishing position.

Archy completed the 36 laps in comfortable fashion and took a strong win, the Renault looked really strong in Mexico, and he himself as somewhat gone under the radar as a potential challenger for Scott’s title. The Haas of Scope and Sam finished on the podium after a fascinating battle with Charlie with all three making daring moves especially on the main straight.

It was a race to forget for Scott who retired late in the session after collecting the wall, and with perennial title challenger SpeedQueen also well off the pace in seventh, could we see a new driver leading the field over the next 12 weeks?

 

Realistic Performance

In a stacked season full of talent, hype and desire for victory, you need to be at your absolute best to stand-out. The driver who certainly did that on Tuesday evening was Frenchman SkyZii who although starting on the second row behind last weeks winner Scopefielder and No-Assist winner LR_Archy was able to come away with the victory after a fantastic battle with the pair ahead plus a charging Scott.

The Alfa Romeo pair of Scott and Archy went toe-to-toe with the Haas’ of Scopefielder and SkyZii, with the four cars giving us some magnificent action on track, and with it only being pre-season you could forgive the grid taking it easy to ensure they were ready for next week. This evidently wasn’t the case, and with SkyZii coming across the line second on track, a post-race penalty applied to Scott promoted the Alfa onto the top-step as the top four all finished within 1.6 seconds of each other.

Pre-season ends in spectacular style for the Performance league, but now the allocations will come into play! Who will be sitting on the grid at the Red Bull Ring and confident they can take the top step of the podium?

 

Equal Performance

F1

It’s a variable who’s-who of talent in F1 this season and with the likes of VSR_Marqueses, Scopefielder and LR_Archy all taking to the grid in F1, the season is shaping up to be as electric fast as ever.

The second pre-season race was won by TamworthFox, who after utilising the perfect strategy was able to cross the line well ahead of potential title winner Marqueses, who himself suffered with penalties during the race and was subsequently dropped from second to third in the standings promoting Scopefielder into second.

The last two races have both proved that we could have a number of different winners in F1 this season, and we certainly can’t count out the title going to the final race in Germany.

 

F2

AaronJSpence drove a masterclass in Mexico, and after a strong pre-season received a promotion to F1 with Partridge99 who equally after standing out in the first races in F2 will make the jump to the ‘Big’ league as F2 now re-assess where the potential champions may come from.

After starting outside of the top-10, Aaron flew through the field and after a battle at the head of the race with Partridge he was able to clear the Renault and finish just under ten seconds up the road.

This race had started however with a bang as Williams team-mates Steen and Tinuss collided on the start line as Steen struggled to get off the line as both cars retired within seconds of the lights going out. The opening laps saw a fantastic battle with the likes of Tony-Y, Warislander, NoFudge and Partridge (who had had a mega start from 13th to lead by the end of lap five), but as the race continued, it was Aaron who on fresh tyres at the start enjoyed the pace in the mid-part of the race.

He came across the line after the 36 laps ahead of Partridge, whilst NeverMiss jumped onto the podium after penalties in a surprise result for the Toro Rosso who certainly had his elbows out after slight contact in the early laps with multiple cars around him, but came through well to contend late in the race.

F2 is blown wide-open with the promotion of Aaron and Partridge to F1, leaving a big gap at the head of the pack to be filled. Who will be the first one to throw their hat in the ring at Austria?

F3

FerociousDan makes it two from two in pre-season as the McLaren driver stood on the top step of the podium in Mexico City. This was after rookie driver Shabz who had picked up pole in the Mercedes was the first driver to DNF in the race which saw another retirement from dmac. Whilst it was a strong race for the likes of Sab7786 and Luke Bailey who stood on the podiums in equal performance for the first time.

F3 is the only league this season without a reigning champion, and therefore leaves a huge gap that will be intensely fought over in the coming weeks, and with results for Dan, Sab and Luke like this, it will raise their hopes of not only a good season for the drivers crown, but the constructors too.

There is plenty to watch in F3 and it always provides edge of your seat racing, hopefully in Austria next week they can once again show why F3 is usually viewed as the most unpredictable on the Invictus calendar.

 

Pre-season is officially ticked off and now the real nerves kick in! The season starts next week at the Red Bull Ring in Austria. Join us from Monday for the opening round of what is going to en an exhilarating season. 

Invictus Racing League – Pre-season One – New game, same Spain

 

 

We opened our account on this years new iteration of the Formula One game, F1 2019 at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain. The circuit hosted an official calendar race last season where we saw some close on-track action, and equally some varying strategies that if put into action correctly can make the races a real mouth-watering climax as drivers fought back on faster tyres.

No Assist

The No-Assist league was first up on Monday night, and with the prospect of not only a full grid, but possibly the biggest group of competitive drivers yet, the league looks in good shape to be its most exciting yet.

It was a turbulent start as many drivers found themselves in first lap incidents with the likes of team-mates white-fountain and LR_Archy colliding at turn five, whilst the opening lap also saw issues for the likes of SJD1988, mj_coop and his Red Bull team-mate Megglugpy who all made early stops for new front wings.

The early stages of the race were controlled by reigning champion, but rookie driver to the league FPL_Charlie had started magnificently, and by lap six was able to sweep past Scott for the lead, and with the soft tyres starting to fall-away for the drivers who qualified on the softest rubber, the likes of Charlie and Scopefielder on the medium compound started to find the race suiting them.

A puncture for Samuthepito on lap seven dropped the Spaniard out of contention, and as BoyBetterKnow committed to the two-stop strategy, the Williams of Charlie and Haas of Scopefielder looked to run longer and go for the one-stop. However, with Scott flying through the field and clawing back time, by lap 14 had re-built a six second gap at the head of the pack, but with Charlie and Scope now on-track until the end it seemed that the race would come back towards the Williams and Haas.

However, a spin for Charlie at turn 12 on lap 20 dropped him into third behind Scope, and back to within striking distance of Scott after the Englishman made his second and final stop, with the Mercedes making his move on Charlie on lap 26 of 33 to re-take second position.

It left Scott six laps to catch the Swedish driver, but with the laps diminishing it eventually ran out as Scope took a deserved and well earned pre-season win ahead of Scott, whilst it was mixed emotions for Charlie, who albeit the spin could have possibly pushed for a debut win.

 

Performance League 

The Performance League looks at its strongest ever this season, with a league full of former race-winners and ex-champions. The race in Spain on Tuesday night saw a wash of strategies, pace and daring as the grid took to the track.

The two leagues have now been amalgamated into one, and the competitiveness subsequently sky-rocketed, but with no clear leader amongst the pack, this will be a mega season.

Scopefielder had lined up on pole looking to continue his form from Monday night, but it was the third placed man who got the best launch off the line as the two-time Performance League champion SkyZii blew by the pole-sitter and elevated the Frenchman into the lead.

The top three of SkyZii, Scope and LR_Archy made a slight break-away in the early stages as the three fought hard to gain the early momentum, whilst last seasons runner-up AaronjSpence maintained good pace in fourth.

SkyZii was the first to pit on lap eleven, but on a clear track and able to make the over-cut work to their advantage, Scope and Archy both jumped the Frenchman after the round of stops, and by the time the pack had all shuffled back into place, SkyZii had gone from the lead to four seconds off of the lead, and with ten laps left to run Scopefielder looked well placed to make it successive wins to start the week.

It turned out to be a dominant win for Scope as the Swede held his nerve, and equally looked after his tyres better than anyone to come across the line over ten seconds ahead of Archy in second, who was able to fend off SkyZii late in the race.

Scope controlled the race as soon as he hit the front, and where we saw retirements down the order for the likes of Jos, Sab and SirSpud. The top three on Tuesday look to already have thrown their name in the hat to be talked about as potential champions come the end of the season.

 

Equal Performance 

F1 

Wednesday night in F1 was the VSR_Marqueses show, as the Williams driver proceeded to blow away the competition. He took pole ahead of reigning champion Scopefielder, whilst CPI_Alex and Ben Muskett would line-up on the second row in a good showing for the pair.

The race however was totally dominated by Marqueses, not only winning by a comfortable margin, he did it on a three-stop strategy, and utilising a huge gap in the early stages, plus the unfortunate retirement from Scope which caused a virtual safety car, he was able to pit for a new set of the mediums and immediately go after the then race leaders of Alex and a charging Samuthepito.

Marqueses second stint was something to be applauded, as he drew out a 36 second lead which gave him the opportunity to make a second, and even then third stop for soft tyres as the Williams cruised to the chequered flag ahead of Sam and a happy FoxyRed2000.

Sheer dominance from Marqueses, and an ominous benchmark set for the field in F1.

F2

A strong lap from Partridge99 on the medium compound put him on the front row alongside pole-sitter Warislander, but with the pole-sitter and third placed man Craig on the softest tyre compound, they would be fast in the early stages.

Although the pair were able to keep the pace in the early stages, once the soft tyre started to lose grip, the duo would fall into the hands of the chasing drivers, and with Partridge making the move for the lead on lap five, both Warislander and Craig dived into the pit-lane.

This promoted AaronJSpence and Captain_Stiff up into a podium place, but as the stint wore on, Stiff was caught and passed by ColinJ. The current F3 champion Stiff pitted first, but after being caught in traffic on the exit fell further behind in his attempt at the under-cut and ultimately out of contention for a podium.

It was a perfect race for Partridge, and after being held up by Warislander briefly Aaron was unable to catch up to the Renault as he took the flag and first pre-season race victory. AaronJSpence and ColinJ would make up the podium, whilst it was a much more positive race for mj_coop in the Red Bull after his first race on Monday, as he ended up in seventh, but a big confidence boost for the new no-assist driver.

F3

For the second season in a row, F3 will start its calendar without a reigning champion, and with plenty of drivers on the grid well placed to step up, a victory in pre-season is the perfect way to gain a psychological advantage over your rivals.

After a dramatic end to qualifying, Sab7786 took pole-position with the last lap on track as the Alfa Romeo driver returned to the series with a bang.

However, an error strewn race from a number of drivers including the pole-sitter Sab effectively gifted the race victory to FerociousDan, and with Syncronously and Bren_Ons picking up podiums behind, the field will now look to stop Dan’s momentum next week in Mexico, with the McLaren driver already an established multi-time F3 race winner, he looks to be a threat for the championship.

F3 is always unpredictable, so we cannot wait for the season to begin in two weeks.

 

 

We head to the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City next week for the second and final pre-season race, join us for another three nights of fantastic racing! 

 

Season Eight is announced!

 

 

 

 

Yesterday, we announced the details about the upcoming eighth season of the Invictus Racing League on the Formula One 2019 game. The F1 leagues have grown from strength to strength recently, and it is with your support that we continue to improve and provide our community and members a mature, competitive, but ultimately fun place to race.

The stream provided news on the dates of the season, major rule changes, race calendar and team and car allocations which will be detailed below.

 

Rule changes and New Features

No-Assist league 

  • To rewards drivers who run fully no-assist (racing line is allowed) a new points system will be implemented to appropriately reward drivers that are using no assist, that will be a +4 point increase on every position, in comparison to those running with the racing line who will pick up the standard Invictus points scoring method.
  • This will be monitored using a ‘weighbridge’ system, each week a randomly selected driver(s) will be asked to provide video evidence of their race to prove that they are running without the racing line. If the driver is unable to supply this video evidence then the standard points scoring will be applied.

Pre-race threads and Forum posts

  • Pre-race threads will no longer be a mandatory requirement for all drivers before the race, and from this season we will be randomly selecting one to three drivers per race to answer interview questions, they will then be written up and added to the Invictus website homepage as a news story.
  • To promote community engagement, pre-race questions will still be added to the site, but members are encouraged to send in questions for the weeks interviewees, this can be anything regarding their thoughts on the race, previous races, rivalries etc, as long as the questions aren’t of a negative or inflammatory position.
  • Members are encouraged to also stay active on the web-site by positing clips, race reviews or highlights in their specific leagues ‘Paddock area’

“The Invictus”

  • Invictus Racing League has growing ambitions about how to rewards its members, not only on the track but off.

That’s why we have decided to create a season-by-season subscription service that we can then use to improve the facilities that members enjoy here at Invictus Racing League, and it is called “The Invictus”. We are starting the subscription at £5 / €5.60 / £6.30 per/season, once we have a sustainable uptake, we will look at increasing the available perks/tiers. If you are interested in supporting the league, please see “The Invictus” tab on the homepage menu where more details are explored.
